Windows lonely .xps extension


Yesterday I went to my online bank to pay off my credit card and when done the bank popped up a confirmation notice with a print button. I didn't want a printed paper copy but I knew that my printer had a 'print to file' button so I said ok to that. The printer options had a list of printers and the .xps format which I ticked. All heck broke loose, download bar started filling then Firefox crashed.

quote:


XPS stands for "XML Paper Specification", and these XPS documents, if large, are paginated for easy printing. XPS files are not "rich" documents like PDF and DOCX, and they do not have images or video clips embedded in them.

XPS is a simple electronic paper format.

Whenever I pay bills online, the company generates a receipt as a proof of payment. These receipts can be downloaded / saved on my hard disk, and they usually end with .XPS extension.



I think that the bolded sentence applies to me.

I've read that Windows Vista used .xps as the default reader/viewer and another read said Windows XP had it too.

I'll be ready the next time when I see a bank confirmation notice.
